Decrease Post-Traumatic Symptoms and Gain a Sense of Calm, Rest, and Happiness through EMDR Therapy
Many people struggle with unwanted thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations that stem from upsetting memories and events in their past. This often leads them to feel as if they can’t “move on” with their life. EMDR Therapy, one of several individual therapy services offered through Newport Beach Family Development Center, can help you move beyond.
You may find yourself doing some or all of the following:
Repeating old behavioral and thought patterns
Struggling with the same unhealthy internal dialogue
Reliving difficult memories
Suffering from low self-esteem
Always feeling on-guard or anxious
Avoiding any person or situation that vaguely reminds you of past upsetting event(s) or memories.
Viewing yourself or others differently
Placing the blame or responsibility of those past events onto yourself
According to leading trauma experts, severely distressing and traumatic memories are processed and stored differently in the brain than are non-traumatic memories.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy with Newport Beach Family Development Center can help you re-process and re-consolidate difficult memories.
Unlike other individual therapy techniques, EMDR does not require the client to remember, share, or relive every part of a distressing event or memory. Mere thoughts, physical sensations, and/or associated emotions are all that is needed to proceed with the work.
Research has shown that this technique is an effective modality for many, allowing a sense of calm, rest, and happiness with a decrease in post-traumatic symptoms and allowing a person to move on with life.
